Firstly I think that it is wonderful that you have joined a gym and are doing daily exercise - this is indeed a step in the right direction. I do think that it may be a good idea to consult an endocrinologist (a medical dr who specialises in hormone imbalances) to see if you do not have a hormone imbalance (e.g. thyroid, female hormones if you are a woman). If you are given a clean bill of health, then discuss the use of Xenical with the specialist. Xenical is a real fat-trapper that prevents you from absorbing fat from what you eat. Xenical is, however expensive so it would help if your dr could motivate for this medication to be paid for by your medical aid. You would use the Xenical with a very-low-fat-diet and this will help you to start losing. So see if you can get Xenical prescribed for your condition.
Hang in there and keep up the good work with the exercise.
